Paper books or kindle?
Which do you prefer more, paper books or kindle(e-books)? And why? I personally prefer kindle as it not only saves trees, it's more convenient and one kindle equals a lot of books, so...
I love the Kindle because it saves me from buying more and more bookshelves.
I personally enjoy reading a paperback book as it seems more real - guess that sounds funny but I prefer paper to a screen anyday however I can see the use of a kindle for while traveling & now that you have raised this issue I will try buy one for our trip next year as books take up a lot of room & are heavy .
I read fast so on a 10 hour trip I read 4 books !
We will be on the plane for 24 hours so won't want the weight .
i prefer a paper book
the smell ,,,,, the thrill of holding a new book (which i have not read yet)....is just the kick for me. e-books all right from the point of conservation of environment. but though i understand the implications i cant hold the feelings and i want to be honest.
Paper, always paper! Nothing like holding, smelling, feeling the words. That said, a kindle or any reader does have it's conveniences. If you are out and about and in an unexpected long wait time, you always have a "book" with you. And you can carry several books when you are traveling!
I read both, I read more kindle e-books, but for instance, if I buy a book with photos, some e-books doesnt have any pictures. But I love the feel of a paper back, but I really like the ability to read a book instantly like kindle.
In a perfect world I would say I prefer a paper book, but I think Kindle is more convenient. So I don't mind exchanging the paper feel for more spare room, saving money and on top of that being able to carry thousands of books in my purse...
I read books on both, but I find that I really enjoy paper books the most unless they are small-print paperbacks. I have a KindleFire, and they are heavy, but occasionally I want to read a really heavy book, so I prefer it on the Kindle. I also have to be very careful or I find myself accidentally turning pages. I keep the paths hot to several local libraries and only buy books on Kindle that I can't borrow at a library or the Kindle lenders library. Two things I enjoy most about the Kindle are that I can never run out of books on the weekend, and I can enlarge the print to any size if my eyes are bothering me. So---I don't want to be without either ebooks or paper books.
